Oniba: Community leader lauds Ambode over rescue efforts

Baale of Aramoni town in Ibeju Lekki area of Lagos State, Chief Lukmon Olayemi Arowolo, has commended Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, over successful rescue of Oniba of Iba, Oba Goriola Oseni, saying it was a demonstration of the concern for the well-being of the traditional institution on his part.

The Baale gave the commendation while speaking with the Nigerian Tribune, pointing out that the governor deserved kudos with the way and manner he had ensured the strengthening of the security agencies in the state in order to make the state not only save for investors but residents as well.

He also said the governor had proved himself as someone who cared so much about people’s welfare with his style of leadership, particularly in ensuring ease of transportation through construction and completion of pedestrian bridges at Ajah, Oworonsoki and the newly completed one at Berger Bus Stop on Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

“I’m overwhelmingly enthused with his style of governing the state, his unrivalled effort towards the construction of a foot bridge at Berger Bus Stop could not be outshined,” the Baale said.

He, however, urged Lagos residents to support the state government by helping it execute his various policies by being law-abiding in order for them to enjoy more dividends of democracy in the state.

According to him, policies such as ban on street trading and prohibition on street begging were introduced to bring sanity in the state, saying there was need for the residents to cooperate in order to bring about its full implementation to the benefit of all.
